"i hate good taste. it's the worst thing that can happen to a creative person !"
helmut newton

ever since my earliest days as a child, i was always driven be visual imagery, music and art that inspired my inner creativity. for me, art took on a special place in my heart, opening doors to a vibrant. in those days, my creativity came to light through drawing, modelling and making music. in the early-90's, i messed around with old cameras of my parents and i became increasingly addicted to seeing life in a new way. i knew that making photographs would become my lifeblood, but never knew how act out this wild dream of actually making a career of it. i'd later spend several years, delving into the mechanics of photography, painstakingly teaching myself how to shoot from my heart and spending countless bucks for gear. i've taken small bits and pieces from other inspirational photographers along the way, but i would eventually mash them all together to find out what works best for me.
i came to the realization, that every person had their own strengths and weaknesses, but living up to them is difficult.

after bringing my camera to a concert some years ago, i found myself at the intersection of two life-long passions. music and photography. after this experience, as an avid music lover and photographer, concert-photography has become my big true passion.

my activity counts on various publications in the most popular music-magazines, newspapers and photo-agencies as well as on many tight collaborations with international artists.

the bottom line is that still i love to get out and shoot. regardless of the consuming business world around me,
i continue to push my creative limits each and every time i'm behind the camera. i like to work with "simple gear",
out of one bag and i don't take myself too seriously... for those who know me, would agree !

used equipment: Canon / Leica / Nikon (digital) / Hasselblad (analog / digital) / my right eye and right index finger
